The home of a Fort Stewart soldier was destroyed Sunday afternoon.

When fire units arrived at the home on Glenn Bryant Road in Hinesville heavy smoke and flames could be seen shooting through the roof of the house.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control, but the rear of the home had sustained heavy fire damage and portions of the front interior of the home received fire, smoke, and water damage.

The families dogs were brought out of the home safely, but it is believed the families two pet cats may haves died in the fire.

Maggie Towne, who lives in the home with her husband, said this afternoon they were making Christmas plans with their in-laws who live in Fleming outside of Hinesville.
